of the course. It should be done individually and is worth 50% of the grade
Due via email on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 8:30 am.
Submission formats: pdf, doc, docx, xlsx, and xls -- make sure you write explicitly the equations you are using, just in case the numeric answer is wrong.
If you have questions, the answers, if relevant, will be sent to the entire class.
As mentioned in class a problem like #11 is provided at no extra cost to you.
You do not need to solve it as you must solve ONLY 10 problems.
You lose points if you turn in 11 problems and increase my load by 10%.
